On-Campus Housing Options

Living on campus is the sure way to be close to everything our campus has to offer. You're a quick walk away from classrooms, meeting places, campus recreation and dining facilities. Plus, you're guaranteed comfortable living accommodations and a residence hall staff whose number one job is to help you! The Housing and Residence Life program at UWG provides comfortable housing, academic support, and opportunities that challenge student residents to succeed. We also provide educational and social opportunities and strive to make living on campus a positive and memorable experience. 

After being admitted into UWG, your next step should be to complete the Housing Contract. The contract can be accessed through logging in to your myUWG portal and clicking on external resources. From there, you will select the StarRez portal to access and complete the your Housing Contract. Room assignments are selected on a first come, first serve basis. If you have already been admitted, complete your housing contract today!
